§8-13A-2. Legislative findings and declaration of purpose.
The Legislature finds that many business districts within the
municipalities of this state are economically depressed. This
adversely affects the economic and general well-being of the
citizens of those municipalities. Establishment of business
improvement districts within municipalities of the state, in
accordance with the purpose and powers set forth in this article,
will serve a public purpose, promote the health, safety,
prosperity, security and general welfare of all citizens in the
state. It will also promote the vitality of commercial business
areas within municipalities, while serving as an effective means
for restoring and promoting commercial and other business activity
within the business improvement districts created herein. This
will be of special benefit to the property within the boundaries of
any business improvement district created under this article and
will stimulate economic growth and job creation.
